You will need this licence if your industrial or waste management activity is high-risk, and you are:
- constructing or installing a plant, or equipment for a prescribed development activity
- developing processes or systems for a prescribed development activity
- modifying (except for general maintenance) plant, equipment, processes or systems for a prescribed development activity.
A development licence is for the design, construction and modification stages of your building project. They protect the environment by enabling you to minimise risk, so far as reasonably practicable, before building starts.
